Team Kern Wheelmen/ Make-A-Wish
We are racing to help 2 amazing kids' dreams come true! We are racing to bring awareness to a beautiful organization that's goal is to make sick children's dreams come true and give them hope as they are in their battles! We are racing with hopes to win this race! We are racing with hopes to break a record!
The Race Across America is the toughest cycling race in the world with cyclists riding from Oceanside, CA almost 3,000 miles nonstop to Annapolis, MD.
So here's the idea, If our friends, family and supporters would consider donating just $5- $10 each through this account, We can reach our goal!
We can't do it all but we can all do something, and together, we can do amazing things!
Please help us! Be a part of this adventure, be a part of this cause and make a difference in these kids lives!
If you can't give that's ok, we still appreciate your prayers and support and maybe someone who can, can give a little more!
Thank you in advance!
The countdown continues. Vans are prepped, the RV is being serviced, racers and crew are packing. Excitement, nervousness, and anticipation are in the air. We are meeting Thursday morning at 5AM at Building Better Bodies Fitness to caravan down to Oceanside, Ca. Family, friends, supporters and media are invited if you'd like to see us off. The plan is to be on the road by 6:30AM
Vans are being wired for lights and communication this Saturday afternoon. There will be a team/Crew meeting Sunday at 3PM at Building Better Bodies Fitness and we will be leaving Bakersfield around 6AM Thursday morning. We have just this one last week to finish raising the necessary funds to accomplish this. We are up against Teams from around the world with huge budgets and endless financial support. We are struggling to meet our bare minimal financial needs.(food and gas) as well as our commitment to MAKE-A-WISH and the children we are pledged to help. Please continue sharing and encouraging others to be a part of this mission.
ATTENTION PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!!! We hit the road in just 8 days. If you are reading this, can you please take just a minute and share this post to your timeline? We will be raffling off a 3day weekend getaway for up to 6 people for a beautiful log cabin nestled among the hills of the Pine Mountain Club. For every donation of $20 or more, an entry will be placed into our drawing. After we return home from the east coast (approximately June 30th) for each $20 donated a ticket will be placed in our drawing. ($20=1 ticket, $40= 2 tickets etc.) Please help us to make a difference.
Word from the official Race Across America Newsletter. Competition will be intense. Records, whether long-established or comparatively recent, will be broken. In the 50-59 solo female division, six-time RAAM winner, Seana Hogan, will be going head-to-head with Kathy Roche Wallace, the current record holder. Two very strong 4-person female teams, Veloroos (Australia) and Love, Sweat & Gears (USA) have a good shot at both the age group and overall records. And in the 4-person male category both Live Earth (USA) and Kern Wheelmen (USA) have a good shot at both the age group and overall records. There will be epic battles as the racers give it everything they've got in their quest for these records. It's going to be a great year!
